    I knew going in that this was a beginner class, even though I have been into photography for many years. I wanted to start with a baseline class, and then continue with more advanced classes, which is the reason that I signed up. For the beginner this was a very good class. The instructor was very approachable, informative, and made sure that all questions were answered, and was very patient with assisting other class members in setting up their cameras. The instructor covered all of the basic components of photography and did a really good job with the class.

    Mmachi was very informative and patient with me, since I did not have an updated Nikon camera. She let me use her Cannon camera, and I throughly enjoyed the class.

    Title or Location: Easton. PA
    Lafayette College had a few early-blooming Japanese Cherry Blossoms that I wished to photograph. While taking a leisurely stroll through the historic district of downtown Easton, I was struck by the picturesque view of College Hill across Route 22. I patiently adjusted my camera settings while waiting for traffic to clear, and finally, a moment presented itself when I was able to stand in the middle of the road to capture this shot.Sony a6600 (1/200 F8 ISO100) with a Tamron 18-300mm lens @ 76m

    During the Blue Hour it wasn't looking good for a great sunset, but as if got closer to 8:00pm the light changed and the then bright and colorful sky was reflected on the still surface of the pond producing nice reflections. It pays to stay!Shot on Canon - f/6.3, 1/100", ISO 250.

    Just when we thought it was all over... an inch of heavy, wet, April snow fell overnight, making everything beautiful again! Cattails are fun to photograph in the autumn colors, but the winter blues and whites added an exceptional color contrast to the scene. Taken at f/5.6, 1/250", ISO 100, 400mm in Lords Valley, PA at McConnell Lake.

    Title or Location: Manhattan New York
    I was riding on the train on my way to downtown to make some street photography shots, when I got off the train I saw those diagonal, horizontal and vertical lines directing my eyes to a black point where there wasn?t anything at this moment, and I thought: Sometimes the decision we want to make has a direction, a very well laid out path like this lines, but it doesn't really lead us anywhere.

    Title or Location: Charlies Hut, Carneys Creek
    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.

    Cremorne Point is always a favourite choice to capture the southerly sunsets with the Sydney Opera House and the city skyline in the frame. This isn't a long exposure shot but a motion blur added to the water in post production.

    Title or Location: Stub Stewart State Park Hilltop area
    This was the day of famous Northern Lights visible in most of the North America. Stubs Stewart is the most ideal dark area for star gazing so I reached there around 11pm. As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to

    It's a famous road for Golden Poplars, but I wanted to capture the Milky way passing over trees that have lost their leaves. it was early evening, but the Milky Way was already high up, so I quickly took some photos and returned to Sydney.
